My drink of choice has been soda for as long as I can remember. I know that it’s not good for me, but I can’t help myself. I enjoy a good soda more than anything else, and I’ve had plenty of them during my life.
The sweetness of soda can’t be beaten in my mind. Some of my favorites, like cream soda, give me just the right amount, and a unique sense of satisfaction. As I get older, though, I fully acknowledge the fact that it’s a habit I’d be better off putting an end to.
Drinking soda is bad for your teeth, negatively impacts your energy levels, and even leads to weight gain. As a result, I’ve decided to replace my sodas with one of a few other drinks.
If you’re at a loss for what to drink in its place and can’t come to terms with the idea of drinking water all day, any one of these drinks might do the job for you.
Have you ever had seltzer? If you have, try drinking it more regularly for a few weeks and the taste of it, or lack thereof, will grow on you. This is a perfectly healthy substitute for soda, and the carbonation definitely helps out.
If you seek a little more flavor, opt for a carbonated fruit drink. There are plenty of these, and the key will be to get one that’s completely natural. One brand that you may enjoy is Fizzy Lizzy, as their brand of sparkling juice drinks has no additives and tastes great.
Yet another possibility is green tea. This will give you a more holistic experience, but there are some great health benefits that come with the drink. If you don’t like the thought of drinking something hot, make some iced green tea.
Give each of these a shot for at least a week if you’re serious about changing your habits. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by what a difference it makes
